The Haslams Pump Track project will create an outdoor adventure space with a new track for bikes, skateboards, wheelchairs, roller skates, scooters and any wheeled devices. Track courses of varying difficulty will entertain and challenge riders, providing a space for beginners to learn and experienced competitors to train their skills.
Beyond the track itself, there will be landscaped areas surrounding the track for rest and recreation. Take a seat and connect with nature. Experience the ecological importance of Sydney Olympic Park, showcased here by the biodiversity of grasslands, native plants and ponds nearby which are habitat for the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog.
The track design will acknowledge Wangal Country, with a selection of features telling stories of the First Nations peoples that have gathered on this land for millennia and that we now call Sydney Olympic Park.
The Project has a number of fixed elements that restrict the scope of possibilities - these include location, site boundaries, existing landform as a foundation for the new track, amenity services and a fixed budget of $500,000 funding received from the Places to Play program. However, there are opportunities for our community to contribute to the character of the track.
We're wanting your inspirations! Let your imagination run a little wild - how do you think the Pump Track could deliver on these goals?
- Acknowledge Wangal Country and promote connections to diverse cultures
- Demonstrate a commitment to Access, Inclusion, and Sustainability
- Promote safety and togetherness
- Landscaping and seating
- Creative features and colours
- Stories and signage
- Naming the facility
